Creamy Garlic Chicken with Cypriot New Potatoes - Foodies100 Challenge

In the winter, there's nothing better than a good hearty meal to warm those insides up after a tiring day at work. When I got the opportunity to pop my chef's hat on again, I of course didn't refuse! The challenge was to include these lovely Cypriot new potatoes in the recipe, and I instantly knew how I was going to incorporate these into my meal. My favourite meals are cream-based dishes, and with a little trial and error, I think I've perfected yet another creamy garlic wonder!

Cypriot potatoes are have made their way from the gorgeous island of Cyprus and are so versatile that they could be used in many dishes. They pride themselves in their 'rich, creamy yet earthy taste' and I can definitely vouch for that in this recipe.
Cypriot New Potatoes are available in Tesco stores from now until the end of March so grab a pack before they're gone!

Come watch me as I cook a Creamy Garlic Chicken & Potato dish with those lovely Cypriot potatoes!

Ingredients (Serves 1)


  • Wash and roughly slice potatoes into approx. 2x2cm cubes. Once complete, place into a large pan of water and add a sprinkle of salt for extra flavour. Put on a medium-high heat for approx. 15-20 minutes.

  • Wash mushrooms and cut in half.

  • Peel and finely dice garlic gloves.

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees (gas mark 6) in preparation for the garlic bread.
  • Add a splash of oil to a large frying pan and heat oil up until hot.
  • Add chicken to pan and fry until white.
  • Add mushrooms and fry until golden brown.
  • Whilst these are frying, pop your garlic bread into your pre-heated oven.
  •  Add the pancetta to the frying pan and stir thoroughly.

  • Whilst this is gently frying, add your double cream to a small saucepan and mix in the diced garlic.

  • Your potatoes should now be thoroughly cooked. Drain and add to frying pan. Stir.
  • Heat cream and garlic and allow to simmer for 2-3 minutes until hot. Do not allow to boil.
  • Add the cream to the rest of the mixture and stir thoroughly, allowing the flavours to absorb.

  • Serve with garlic bread, and enjoy!
